The petition of the day is:

16-54

Issue: Whether a conviction under one of the seven state statutes criminalizing consensual sexual intercourse between a twenty-one-year-old and someone almost eighteen constitutes an “aggravated felony” of “sexual abuse of a minor” under 8 U.S.C. § 1101(a)(43)(A) of the Immigration and Nationality Act – and therefore constitutes grounds for mandatory removal.
